Powerball DC – DC Power Ball

The DC Lottery is 1 of 47 US State Lotteries & District Lotteries that offer the Powerball lottery game – in this case the DC Lottery Powerball – as part of its overall range of lotto games.

Powerball is a Multi-State USA Lottery game that is run by the MUSL – Multi State Lottery Association and is one of the largest lottery games in the world – having produced the biggest jackpot the world has ever seen on January 13th 2016 with a mind-blowing US$ 1.586 BILLION dwarfing the existing US$ 656 Million MegaMillions record jackpot.

The very first Powerball draw took place on April 22nd 1992 with 16 USA Lottery companies – who were all members of the MUSL – taking part when the game changed its format and name from Lotto America which started on February 13th 1988.

The DC Lottery Powerball was first sold on April 22nd 1992 taking part in the very first Powerball draw – since the Washington DC Lottery was one of the 6 original members who formed the Multi State Lottery Association back on September 16th 1987.

DC Powerball How it Works

The DC Powerball works in the same way as the Powerball game works in all US States and Districts that offer the game.

Jackpots start off at US$ 40 Million and rollover after each draw when the top prize is not won – increasing in size by a minimum of US$ 10 Million each time making for some huge jackpot figures.

6 numbers are drawn in total for the DC Powerball game from 2 separate drawing machines – firstly 5 numbers from 69 white balls are drawn and then 1 number (the Powerball) from 26 red balls.

Draws for the DC Lottery Powerball take place twice every week on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10.59pm EST.

There is also a Powerball prize multiplier facility available when playing that dramatically increases the size of a Powerball win and is called Powerball POWERPLAY


The Powerball POWERPLAY option is a prize multiplier and will automatically increase the Powerball win by up to 10 times the original amount – and is there to give players of the DC Powerball a chance to increase their winnings on all levels of the prize structure apart from the DC Powerball jackpot itself.

Using the Powerball POWER PLAY option – you are easily able to multiply your winnings on these levels by 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x and when the jackpot has not reached US$ 150 Millioneven 10xdramatically enhancing the amount you will walk away with.

Whatever PowerPlay number may have been drawn any Powerball 2nd prize of US$ 1 Million will automatically be doubled to US$ 2 Million if played with Powerball Power Play.
